The original Samsung Galaxy Note took five months to reach 5 million shipments to retailers. The Galaxy Note II reached the same milestone in less than half that amount of time, and the Galaxy Note 3 has continued the trend of besting its predecessor in half the time.
Samsung Mobile leader JK Shin revealed today that Samsung has sold more than 5 million units of the Galaxy Note 3 in one month. The sales figures are global and related to how many devices have been shipped to retailers and distributors, who will then sell the phone to customers. Though Shin cites the success of the Note II as the reason for the sales, a big reason for the increase is more launch partners. The original Galaxy Note did not launch in the U.S. until months later; the Note II launched in Asia and the UK in September but not in the US until November.
News of the Galaxy Note 3 sales are fresh on the heel of Samsung?s proclamation last week that it has sold 40 million units of the Galaxy S4. Samsung is on track to sell more than 50 million of its premiere smartphones by the end of the year.source: Hankooki, via: Samsung Hub
